One Great Artist

There’s only enough room in this kitchen
For one great artist and that is me
My paintings line the walls from floor to ceiling
And they’re laden with sardonic imagery

This one’s called the mess I made in high school
And this one’s called responsibility
I haven’t got a favourite subject matter
I only try to capture what I see

Make a photo-fit for life
Doing time with the brush and knife
For good reason that I no longer recall
Perfecting each and every fake is my genius my escape
Critical acclaim can wait you can keep it all

My work is expensive nay it’s priceless
Encapsulates the essence of the soul
I’m not afraid of dying in obscurity
Nor hooking up with Judas on parole

[Chorus]

My work has been compared to the so called greats
Pollock, Rothko, Blake and Kandinksky
I know some of you will understand
Most of you will pity me

Still there’s only enough room in this kitchen
For one great artist
Only enough room in this kitchen

For me me me me me me………
